Coming, off impressive back-to-
tck victories over Toledo a n d
innesota, Michigan's basketball
team travels to Bloomington to-
day for a night game with the
down-and-out Hoosiers of Indiana.'
The Wolverines, apparently re-
gaining their sharp early-season
form, thumped Minnesota 95-87
last Saturday behind Rudy Tom-
-4anovich's 37 points and 24 re-
bounds to move their Big Ten re-
cord to 4-6.
Indiana is camped in last place
with a 2-8 record and doesn't look
to be much of a problem f o r
Michigan. The Hoosiers could be
tough on the boards with 6'8"
Joby Wright and 6'6' Ken John-
son, but' Michigan kept even on
the boards last Saturday with .
Minnesota, the league's leading re-
bounders, and should be able to
handle the Hoosiers.
Figuring to be putting the pres-
sure on the Wolverine defense is
Hoosier guard Jim Harris, whose
17.9 average leads the team. Har-
ris scored his season high of 34
against the Rupp-men of Kentucky
-no small feat.
This year though, failure out-
weighs success in Bloomington;
one big problem is a lack of scor-
4 ing balance. While three starters
average in double figures, the best
the rest of the team can do is only
below 7 points a game.
'Indiana's shooting percentage
from the floor has remained all
year under the 50 per cent mark
and dips regularly into the lower
X40 per cents. At the same time,
opposing teams have been able to
outshoot the Hoosiers, often soar-
ing far above the 50 per cent
mark.

NIGHT EDITOR:
JERRY CLARKE
Against Iowa, for instance, Ind-
iana shot an even 50 per cent from
the floor in scoring 89 points, but
allowed the Hawkeyes to pump in
104 points with a .614 average
from the floor.
Another problem tripping the
Hoosiers is a characteristic lapse
in the second half - one reason
why their win total isn't higher
than it is right now.
Nevertheless, Indiana is always
harder to handle on their h o m e
floor. "They've been having prob-
lems on away games," said Coach
Johnny Orr, "but they'll be tough
at home."
A Wolverine victory, according
to Orr, will require "the same en-
thusiasm to play that beat Minne-
sota." Orr also expects Tomiano-
vich to turn in another fine game.
Rudy's performance had dipped
noticably for three games prev-
ious to Minnesota, but his 37
point, 24 rebound total against
the Gophers convinced any doubt-
ers that Rudy is All-American ma-
terial.
A victory tonight could keep the.
Wolverines boring along in the
winning groove' and provide
enough momentum to help the
Maple men put the kibosh on Wis-
coisinSaturday.

Adolph Rupp's Kentucky W i d-
cats have edged ahead of UCLA
in the weekly Associated P r e s s
major college basketball poll by
winning two games while the
Bruin's 21-game winning streak
was snapped by Oregon.
The balloting of 29 members of
a national panel of sports writ-
ers and sportscasters gave Ken-
tucky a two-point edge, 534-532
and a wider margin in first place
votes, 14-11. Each team has a
21-1 record.
South Carolina also drew three
firsts and Jacksonville got one as
the teams moved close to t h e
tournament stage of the season.
Except for the advance of Ken-
tucky from second to first and the
drop of UCLA to the runnerup
spot, the order of the first seven
teams was unchanged from last
week.
St. Bonaventure added victories

over St. Francis and Long Is-
land University to hold third place
with 420 points and South Caro-
lina remained in fourth position
after downing both North Caro-
lina State and North Carolina.
New Mexico State clung to'fifth
place with the end of their regu-
lar season coming up Saturday.
Jacksonville held sixth by drop-
ping Florida State from eighth to
10th place with an 85-81 vic-
tory. Pennsylvania, 23-1 and mov-
ing up to its showdown battle with
Columbia Friday for the Ivy
L e a g u e title, held seventh by
downing Yale and Brown.
Marquette advanced to eighth
place and Iowa used victories over
Illinois and Ohio State to jump
from the 11th to ninth. Florida
State rounded out the Top Ten.
Davidson, Wsetern Kentucky,
Notre Dame, North Carolina State
and Houston were the next five in
order followed by Drake, Kansas

top slot
State, Columbia, North Carolina
and Utah State. The new teams
this week are Columbia, 18th and
Utah State, 20th. Louisville and
Santa Clara dropped out of the
Top Twenty.
UCLA, shooting for its fourth
straight NCAA championship, saw
its 21-game streak snapped by
Oregon, 78-65. The Bruins still
hold a two-game lead over Oregon
in the Pacific Eight with four
games to go.
Kentucky, on the v e r g e of
clinching the Southeastern Con-
ference title, bombed Georgia and
then whipped Louisiana State Sa-
turday despite 64 points by Pete
Maravich in his final home ap-
pearance.
Among the games on this week's
schedule, involving rated teams,
are South Carolina - North Caro-
line State, New Mexico State -
Utah State on Saturday, and the
Penn - Columbia battle F r i d a Y

Today's hand was played inj
three no trump at almost every
table, and most declarers found
ways to go down simply because
they forgot that the most im-
portant thing is to make the con-
tract and not to go frantically
searching for overtricks.,
The bidding is fairly routine,
and after South's two no bid, most
North players realized that they

had the spade suit adequately
enough stocked to have a good
shot at landing a game in no
trump.

By The Associated Press
It appears as though the Detroit
fans are actually giving Denny
McLain what he asked for-the
benefit of the doubt. In fact hu-
man good nature seems to be shin-
ning thrQugh as a drive has been
initiated by his fans to aid the
Tiger pitcher in his financial prob-
lems.
"It sure makes a person feel
great;" McLain said during an in-
terview at his modest but attrac-
tive Lakeland home. "It makes you
appreciate Detroit fans ant; people
generally."
The drive began shortly after
baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn
suspended McLain pending an in-
vestigation concerning associations
Denny allegedly had in 1967 with
illegal bookmaking.
But basically the campaign has
been directed toward helping him
out of financial hot water. He has
had numerous troubles with every-
thing from taxes to non-payment
of bills on his rented house in
suburban Detroit. I
While McLain remained in eco-
nomic limbo, the Detroit Tiger

pitching star is getting many job
offers - primarily to entertain in
nightclubs.
But the 25-year-old righthander
said Sunday he can't accept any
of them until 'he is more definite
about his future in baseball.
"I've had a lot of offers from
clubs in the last few days," Mc-
Lain said.
McLain, who plays the organ
and also sings, said he had had
a lot of other job offers.
"But I'll just wait to find out
what's going on because I want
to play baseball more than any-
thing else," he said.
"I've got to remain optimistic.
I can't be pessimistic."
McLain had just returned from
playing a round of golf but bas-
ically he has been living in seclu-
sion since being indefinitely sus-
pended from baseball Thursday by
Kuhn.
"Did Kuhn give you, any indi-
cation of how long the investiga-
tion would take, or when he would
give a more definite ruling," Mc-
Lain was asked.

"No. I have no idea at all," he
replied sternly as he sat in his
plush chair in his emerald-green
carpeted living room..
"I'm praying for a good decision
and a decision as fast as Kuhn
can make it," he stressed.
In another, development base-
ball commisisoner Kuhn met over
the weekend with Detroit Tiger
manager Mayo Smith, 'general
manager Jim Campbell and vice
president Rick Ferrell in Florida
to discuss the McLain situation.
Ferrel acknowledged yesterday:
"We did meet. I think it was
just a matter of information that
Kuhn was trying to secure to help
him in his investigation," he said.
"I'd rather not mention specifics."
McLain was suspended Thursday
by Kuhn for what the commis-
sioner said was an association
with illegal bookmaking activities
in 1967. The suspension is for an
indefinite period pending comple-
tion of Kuhn's investigation into
the matter.

make by taking the club finesse
and went down two while others
gamely conceded defeat and ig-
nored the clubs and made eight
tricks with four diamond tricks,
two spades and two hearts.
After this analysis of how not
to 'play the hand, perhaps you
have spotted the way to cinch the
contract. Declarer should take the
first trick in his hand and immed-
iately set out to take the diamond
to clinch his contract. He should
lead a diamond towards dummy,
and if West ducks, as he should,
declared should rise up with the
king.
Why? From his overcall, West
almost certainly has the ace of
diamonds and there is a high pro-
bability that he has the king of'
clubs, too. But, says the cynic,
what if West has three diamonds?
If that is the case, the con-
tract will be made, for the de-
fenders will never be able to take
two diamond tricks. After the king
holds, declarer should take t h e
club hook and West is in for the
last time before South has his nine
tricks. He can lead a diamond to
East's queen, and then take the
ace of spades if East has t h e
brains to return his partner's suit,
but that is still only four tricks.
South will have his diamond trick
in addition to his four clubs and
two tricks in each of the majors.
Thinking a hand through be-
fore setting out can save declar-
ers much grief.

CINCINNATI - Jeff Sewell hit
68 per cent of his field goals and
converted two key free throws to
stymie a late Xavier Ohio rally
and lead eight-ranked Marquette
to an 81-73 nonconference basket-
ball victory last night.
Sewell, hitting 13 of 19 floor
shots, tallied a game-high 29
points while leading the Warriors
to their 19th triumph against
three losses. Xavier dropped to
5-18, its worst record in its~ 50-
year history in basketball.
Irish bounce Butler
INDIANAPOLIS-Notre Dame's
Austin Carr scored 50 points and
teammate Collis Jones added 40
as the Irish beat Butler 121-114
last night before 17,000 college
basketbal fans who turned out to
say goodbye to Butler Coach Tony
Hinkle.
Carr, the nation's second-lead-
ing scorer, had 27 p*ints in the
first half as the 13th ranked Irish
battled to a 63-60 halftime lead
over the smaller Bulldogs.
Butler, with sophomore Billy
Shepherd making up for a rela-1
tively cold first half, took the lead,
mid-way in the second half.
Jones and Carr brought Notre
Dame back quickly, however, and
the Irish went ahead to stay at
86-84 with 10:36 to play.

The Wildcat victory coupled
with Tennessee's 88-87 triumph

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Rudy

night to give Tennessee an 88-

in a, Southeastern Conference bas-
ketball game.
Pete. Maravich, the nation's
leading scorer set the stage for
Kinard's game-winning toss when
he put the Tigers ahead 87-86 on
a 15-foot jumper with 20 seconds
left. Tennessee called timeout with
12 seconds remaining and the Vols
worked the ballin ~the corner to
Kinard who hit the winner.
Tennessee limited "Pistol" Pete

put for the season. But the floppy-
haired All-American got 22 of his
total in the second half to keep
LSU in contention.

Opening lead--six of spadev
West opened his fourth best
spade and the declarers immed-
iately began to find various ways
to go down. Some played the nine
from the board and let it hold the
trick. These declarer's then pro-
ceeded to take the club finesse by
leading dummy's jack.
West took this trick and lead
another spade. South won in his
hand, but by now it was too late.
South needed another trick in
diamonds to make nine tricks, and
when he lead towards the dummy,
West rose with the ace and took
the spades. Down one.
Some other declarer's realized
the need for a diamond trick to
insure the contract if the club
king was offside, and they took
the spade in the closed hand.
They then led a diamond towards
the dummy.
Most cunning West players duck-
ed, and when declarer took the
deep finesse with the jack, East
was in with. the queen and re-
turned a spade. South was in
again and doomed again. Some
